The Mid-American Conference is a gem among NCAA Division 1 mid-majors.  Fans of the MAC saw an extraordinarily deep contest this year that featured 6 MAC Conference Records, 7 MAC Championship Meet Records and 13 Jones Natatorium Pool Records.  Eastern Michigan, who claimed the title in two relays and six individual events, captured their 33rd MAC crown with 846 points.  This title is their second in a row and is the 23rd over the career of EMU Head Coach Peter Linn.
